The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense: Goldy Bear Culinary Mysteries, Book 17 | [Diane Mott Davidson]

The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense: Goldy Bear Culinary Mysteries, Book 17

>Goldy Schulz knows her food is to die for, but she never expects one of her best friends to actually keel over when she's leaving a birthday party Goldy has catered. At first, everyone assumes that all the fun and excitement of the party, not to mention the rich fare, did her in. But what looks like a coronary turns out to be a generous serving of cold-blooded murder. And the clever culprit is just getting cooking. When a colleague - a woman who resembles Goldy - is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu.

Publisher's Summary

Caterer and sleuth extraordinaire Goldy Schulz jumps from the frying pan into the fire as she tries to solve a puzzling murder that is much too close to home, in this latest entry in the New York Times best-selling series from "today's foremost practitioner of the culinary whodunit" (Entertainment Weekly).

Goldy Schulz knows her food is to die for, but she never expects one of her best friends to actually keel over when she's leaving a birthday party Goldy has catered. At first, everyone assumes that all the fun and excitement of the party, not to mention the rich fare, did her in. But what looks like a coronary turns out to be a generous serving of cold-blooded murder. And the clever culprit is just getting cooking. When a colleague - a woman who resembles Goldy - is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu. With time running out, Goldy must roll up her sleeves, sharpen her knives, and make a meal out of a devious murderer, before that killer can serve her up cold.

    "BEST book in the entire series."
    What made the experience of listening to The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense the most enjoyable?

    Great story. The book kept my attention from the beginning to the end. Love this series but the author really went the extra mile with this one.
    I enjoyed the "puzzle" within the story, the review of history for the main character and the way it was all tied up in the end.
    BY THE WAY....SPOILERS......SO HAPPY with how this book ended. I for one have been waiting for this to happen in the storyline for a long time. Great way to bring it about.
    Very touching.....I laughed....then I cried (with joy) for Goldie.


    What other book might you compare The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense to and why?

    Perhaps this is comparable to the book (can't remember the title of the specific book in the series) in which Goldie's first husband the JeRK was murdered.


    Which character – as performed by Barbara Rosenblat – was your favorite?

    Toss up between Marla and Goldie. Love em both.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The end. SPOILERS.....the end was such a wonderful surprise and sweet gift the author gave us. Such a great way to end the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it or listen to it especially if you have read prior books in the series. This is the BEST one thus far. Thank you Diane Mott-Davidson for this one!

    "LOVED IT!"
    If you could sum up The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense in three words, what would they be?

    Suspense filled fun!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was extremely funny.


    What about Barbara Rosenblat’s performance did you like?

    Ms. Rosenblatt infuses so much personality into the characters that I feel as if I am in the story with them.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud in several spots.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read all Diane Mott Davidson's books and listened to approximately half of them. I so much prefer Ms. Rosenblat's performances that I have repurchased those that she has recorded, replacing the other narrator. This book was very funny, and intriguing. I always enjoy the interplay between Goldie and her friends. The larger role Marla played in the book probably heightened my enjoyment, as she is hilarious. When Goldie won't do what you wish she would because it is just too outrageous - in steps Marla - damn the torpedoes. I hate it when women are easily victimized and sometimes Goldie is too placid for my tastes. In this book she was very nicely balanced by the actions of Marla.

    "Fun voice for the character"

    I have read and enjoyed this culinary mystery series for years, looking forward to each new release. This was my first time listening, and I enjoyed the performance of Barbara Rosenblat. Her slightly raspy voice gave wonderful character to the rowdy Goldy Bear. I look forward to listening to the next one.

    "I can't imagine Goldy with this voice!"
    What did you like best about The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense? What did you like least?

    This voice is just not Goldy to me. I imagined her as younger and peppier. This simply sounds like an old lady smoker to me. Sorry, but it's awful.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Enjoyed the book, the plot and characters.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    I just imagine Goldy with a younger, smoother, and less "dramatic" voice. This voice says a 65 year old woman in a caftan to me.


    Do you think The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes--kept up with characters and what you would expect, but not the same same thing.

    "So unrealistic yet entertaining"

    Glad that Goldy is back but the premise of her having so much involvement in a police investigation makes the whole story unrealistic for me. The story itself was entertaining and I was looking for entertainment. Love Barbara Rosenblat as the narrator.

    "Disappointing"

    I've read all the books in this series, and was looking forward to this new release. What a huge disappointment. I've tried twice, and just can't finish it; it just doesn't hold my interest.

    The plot is thin, and presented in a scatter-gun manner. The details are uninteresting: the whodunnit doesn't beg to be solved.

    The characters are similarly uninteresting. Goldy, always a scatter brain, is no longer charmingly so; she's just irritatingly stupid.

    The performance is similarly annoying. The sotto voce so often used is just boring.

    Goldy has been a favorite for light reading since I picked up the first audiobook. This was to be a swing book between heavier reading, but I couldn't force myself to finish it. A light book should hold the reader's attention.

    "Another winner!"

    I have been reading Diane Mott Davidson since she started writing the Goldy Bear Culinary Mysteries. When my family took road trips, YEARS AGO, we would order the books on tape of the series.
    This book is yet another winner. I hope she writes a few more. I really do.
